Authors I’d Love a New Book From

When it comes to authors, we all have our favorites. Some of my favorites, like Richard Powers and Maira Kalman and Anne Lamott, are alive and still writing. Some of my favorites, sadly, are gone and will write no more. Here are some of my favorite writers listed with my favorite book of that author, authors who are gone and who will write no more, that I wish could share more new books with us. 

Carol Shields (Happenstance)

Robert M. Pirsig (Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance)

Irene Némirovsky (Suite Française)

Amy Krouse Rosenthal (Encyclopedia of an Ordinary Life)

Italo Calvino (If on a Winter's Night a Traveler)

Sid Fleischman (Chancy and the Grand Rascal)

Arnold Lobel (Days with Frog and Toad)

William Steig (Sylvester and the Magic Pebble)

Do you know the work of any of these authors? 

Are any of them favorite authors of yours? 

What authors that have passed do you wish were still writing?

Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January of 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together. Each Tuesday That Artsy Reader Girl assigns a topic and then post her top ten list that fits that topic. You’re more than welcome to join her and create your own top ten (or 2, 5, 20, etc.) list as well. Feel free to put a unique spin on the topic to make it work for you! Please link back to That Artsy Reader Girl in your own post so that others know where to find more information.
